One important theme is the conflict between good and evil. The protagonist knows what evil consists of, and he also knows the consequences of practicing evil. Nevertheless, he desires all material things of the world, so he is drawn in by that side of his nature. He gives in to the sensual world; thus he is tempted and falls victim to that temptation.
